This gearbox utilizes a 30:1 ratio worm-drive reduction for applications that require extremely slow and smooth rotational motion. The worm-drive design not merely minimizes backlash but also eliminates back-driving the gearmotor so a position can be held even when power is not applied. The precision surface 3/8” stainless steel result shaft is backed by dual 3/8” ABEC 5 ball bearings to aid a load from any orientation. The ¼” ABS plastic and aluminium structure offers a rigid framework without adding unnecessary weight and can be easily mounted to any flat work surface by utilizing the bottom mounting tabs. Our Regular Spur Gear motors will continue to work with this gearbox (motor marketed separately). The Vertical Shaft Worm-Drive Gearbox is perfect for turn-tables, time-lapse systems and low-acceleration applications that require high precision and torque.

High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large acceleration reduction ratios with only one gear pairing in a far more compact space when compared with other styles of gears. You can expect up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel equipment pairings is the low level noise they produce. Some disadvantages will be the general low effectiveness and the actual fact that they generate temperature.
Advantage of EP’s Worm Gears - “Cold rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been achieved by work hardening when the frosty rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms due to truth that the metallic fibrous structure has not been cut.
2) The top hardness after frosty rolling is increased by 1.2 to 1 1.3 times in comparison to the hardness of the initial material, and the hardness of the helicoid surface area increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Chilly rolled worms are ideal for miniature gear applications since this can be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of POM or other soft materials.
4) Because of the implementation of this cold rolling method, the helicoid surface area of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes out with a mirror like complete. Thus, EP-Precision Cool Rolled Worms give a smooth procedure and long term durability.
Worm gears are constructed of a worm and a equipment (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, non-intersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm is definitely analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus is usually analogous to a spur gear. The worm is worm wheel gearbox normally the driving component, with the worm’s thread advancing one's teeth of the gear.
Just like a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear may have a single start or multiple starts - meaning that there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each full turn (360 degrees) of the worm increases the gear by one tooth. Therefore a gear with 24 teeth will provide a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-start worm, the gear reduction equals the number of teeth on the gear, divided by the amount of starts on the worm. (That is different from almost every other types of gears, where the gear reduction is usually a function of the diameters of both components.)
The meshing of the worm and the gear is a mixture of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding actions causes friction and temperature, which limits the effectiveness of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and therefore, high temperature), the worm and gear are constructed with dissimilar metals - for example, the worm may be made of hardened steel and the gear made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The utilization of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also contributes to quiet operation.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where sound should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. In addition, the use of a softer materials for the apparatus means that it can absorb shock loads, like those experienced in weighty equipment or crushing devices.
The primary advantage of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be used as swiftness reducers in low- to medium-speed applications. And, because their reduction ratio is founded on the number of gear teeth alone, they are smaller sized than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear's worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a limited space using right angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and amount of begins on the worm - and because increased effectiveness is always an objective, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears used together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.

How to Select High Efficient Worm Gearbox?
The worm gear production process is also relatively simple. However, there exists a low transmission efficiency problem if you don’t understand the how to select the worm gearbox. 3 basic indicate choose high worm gear efficiency that you need to know:
1) Helix position. The worm gear drive efficiency mostly depend on the helix position of the worm. Usually, multiple thread worms and gears is usually more efficient than solitary thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase efficiency.
2) Lubrication. To select a brand lubricating essential oil can be an essential factor to boost worm gearbox efficiency. As the proper lubrication can decrease worm equipment action friction and warmth.
3) Materials selection and Gear Production Technology. For worm shaft, the material ought to be hardened metal. The worm gear material ought to be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm gear hardness, the friction on the worm tooth is reduced. In worm manufacturing, to use the specific machine for gear reducing and tooth grinding of worms also can increase worm gearbox performance.
From a sizable transmission gearbox power to an even small worm gearbox load, you can choose one from a wide selection of worm reducer that precisely fits your application requirements.
Worm Gear Package Assembly：
1) You may complete the installation in six different ways.
2) The installation must be solid and reliable.
3) Ensure that you examine the connection between your engine and the worm equipment reducer.
4) You must use flexible cables and wiring for a manual set up.
By using the innovative science and drive technology, we have developed several unique “square container” designed from high-quality aluminium die casting with a beautiful appearance. The modular worm gearbox design series: worm drive gearbox, parallel shaft gearbox, bevel helical gearbox, spiral bevel gearbox, coaxial gearbox, right angle gearbox. An NMRV series gearbox is usually a standard worm gearbox with a bronze worm equipment and a worm. Our Helical gearbox products comprises of four universal series (R/S/K/F) and a step-less velocity variation UDL series. Their structure and function are similar to an NMRV worm gearbox.
In the EP worm gears, the output shaft is offset by 90° from the drive shaft. A dual shaft for double-sided result or a cover for the short shaft end are optionally available as accessories. EP gearboxes come with a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant based on polyethylene glycol, and so are as a result maintenancefree. They are characterized by high efficiency and self-locking.
Due to their relatively high backlash (~1-2°), worm gears aren't suitable for positioning applications.
Worm Gear applications
App of worm gears, which is comparable to a standard spur and the worm, which is a cylindrical equipment that resembles a screw, permits smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, while retaining torque or power. It is common for worm gears to have reductions of 20:1, and also up to 300:1 or greater.
Standard gearing includes the initial capability which additional gearing components do not have - the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, but the “gears” cannot maneuver and fully rotate the worm-zone.
What’s the reason behind this inability to rotate the gear-worm?
The angle is not deep enough on the worm, so when the apparatus attempts to rotate the worm, high frictional pressure between worm shaft and gear parts keep the zone stuck in position.
